Let me begin by saying from our family to yours, HAPPY THANKSGIVING! We here at TrendingPolitics.com have appreciated your support all year, and we urge you to stay informed by sticking with us all the way through the 2020 election. Enjoy your Thanksgiving, and God Bless!
In President Trump's inspiring Thanksgiving Proclamation, he started off by thanking God for all of the blessings He has provided us. He also gave special recognition to service members and law enforemcent who put their lives on the line for the American people on a daily basis.
"On Thanksgiving Day, we remember with reverence and gratitude the bountiful blessings afforded to us by our Creator, and we recommit to sharing in a spirit of thanksgiving and generosity with our friends, neighbors, and families," the proclamation begins.
He continues by saying:
Since the first settlers to call our country home landed on American shores, we have always been defined by our resilience and propensity to show gratitude even in the face of great adversity, always remembering the blessings we have been given in spite of the hardships we endure.
This Thanksgiving, we pause and acknowledge those who will have empty seats at their table. We ask God to watch over our service members, especially those whose selfless commitment to serving our country and defending our sacred liberty has called them to duty overseas during the holiday season.
We also pray for our law enforcement officials and first responders as they carry out their duties to protect and serve our communities. As a Nation, we owe a debt of gratitude to both those who take an oath to safeguard us and our way of life as well as to their families, and we salute them for their immeasurable sacrifices.
As we gather today with those we hold dear, let us give thanks to Almighty God for the many blessings we enjoy. United together as one people, in gratitude for the freedoms and prosperity that thrive across our land, we acknowledge God as the source of all good gifts. We ask Him for protection and wisdom and for opportunities this Thanksgiving to share with others some measure of what we have so providentially received.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim Thursday, November 28, 2019, as a National Day of Thanksgiving. I encourage all Americans to gather, in homes and places of worship, to offer a prayer of thanks to God for our many blessings.
God bless President Trump for recognizing the men & women who fight and defend our country. There are many who won't be joining their families at the dinner table today, and it's because of their willingness to protect the country they love.
Please remember all military members and law enforcement on this Thanksgiving Day!
